How much to build a second story deck?

Our home has a wrap around deck, finished in front and one side. It needs to be finished on the back, second story part of the home (its a raised ranch). The dimensions would be 8' by 48'. Just wondering around what it would cost for something basic, nothing fancy for labor and materials. We are in the midwest if that makes a difference in lumber prices. Thanks.

Go to Home depot, Menard's or Lowe's and talk to the folks at the contractors desk they will help you with all of the specs and give you a complete material list and cost data sheet for the diy type guy. Then call out contractors and have them bid the design for install. This will ensure everyone is on the same page... More

Materials, prices and the locale will all make a difference in the pricing. As Pescador has said, you need to get some estimates and some of them may be available through your local garden centre. The Muse
